St. Louis county police officials are looking for an armed 23-year-old father who cops say broke into the home of his eleven-month-old child's mother and abducted the baby and the woman this morning.

The abduction and assault happened just before 9 a.m. this morning on Vanity Fair Drive in north St. Louis county.

Police say: "The mother was forced with the child into his tan Ford Explorer by the subject and drove from the scene."

The woman, however, managed to jump out of the vehicle -- but the father drove off with the baby, cops say.

The suspect is Bryan Grant, and their baby daughter is Demi Grant.

The mother reportedly jumped out of the car at Jennings Station and Hord and suffered "minor injuries."
